About this project

Greetings Boils and Ghouls! Kevin Gentilcore and William Tooker, of Creephouse Comics, are looking to raise funds to print Teenage Love Zombies AND Never Send a Monster: two all ages horror graphic novels. 

Who are these Creeps?

My name is Kevin Gentilcore, and I'm the artist at Creephouse Comics. Along with writer William Tooker, I've been making creator-owned, all-ages horror and sci-fi comics for the past 5 years. We're looking to raise $5000 to cover the cost of printing and shipping for two of our new books, Teenage Love Zombies and Never Send a Monster. Some of our other comics include Creephouse Comics Vol 1: Creeps, The Haunter, and Krush McNulty. We love a good genre-yarn, fog-filled, cobblestone streets, Victorian-era top hats, pulp sci-fi, monsters, and madmen. We hope our comics remind you that horror can be fun, as well as scary. 

Don't forget to follow us on the Facebook and Twitter

The Comics 

Teenage Love Zombies 

 

If love knows no bounds, can it survive death? Teenage Love Zombies tells the tale of two lovers from different social classes that find each despite their differences… or what their friends think. Oh, and there’s a mad scientist who has been working on perfecting a cure for death!

A rock n' roll/horror/romance tale of heartache; where greasers take on the squares, love drives people to the edge, pumpkins come to life, and people are on the menu!

Teenage Love Zombies originally appeared online from 2010 to the summer of 2014. It updated every Tuesday night with a new page at teenagelovezombies.com

Story and Art: Kevin Gentilcore

 Never Send a Monster 

Tulpa, translated as “magical emanation," a "conjured thing,”  and “phantom,” is a concept in mysticism. It refers to a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual, or mental, discipline alone. It is defined in Indian Buddhist texts as any unreal, illusory or mind created apparition.

Never Send a Monster is a comic anthology featuring three separate but echoing tales “Never Send a Monster,” “Never Make a Monster,” and “Monsters Never Prosper.” Each story serves as a warning about obsession as witnessed by mystical manifestations (tulpas), each serving a master with their own intentions.

What are the Creepy Rewards? 

We've got a bunch of spooky rewards for backers. They are all listed in the pledge levels, but here's what you can get...

Exclusive Prints
We've made two new prints, exclusive for this Kickstarter campaign. They feature the Zombie Queen from Teenage Love Zombies and a scene from Never Send a Monster. Both measure 8x10 inches and will only be available for backers, never to be sold again.

The Books
You'll be able to get both books in print, digital, or both. Both graphic novels are full color, measuring 6x9 inches. Teenage Love Zombies clocks in at 120 pages and Never Send a Monster comes in at 80, for a total of 200 pages of original comics! 

Original Art 
We'll be offering original and custom art to backers as well. You can get an original custom sketch measuring 5.5x8.5 inches or an original page from Never Send a Monster measuring 8.5x11 inches. There are a limited number of original comic pages, so act quickly!  

Thank you so much for supporting our campaign. Stay creepy, my friends!
